Hes right about Greg Jackson but Dana should do the right thing here and stop being a businessman and cut Jones out of the UFC. Id do what I preach.

On what ****ing planet would that be the right thing to do? He should start being a business man and keep his ****ing mouth shut about his personally feelings regarding his employees, colleagues and associates.

Quote:
“The Jon Jones piece of meat (expletive) thing. When I see him in (expletive) Toronto, that’s the first (expletive) thing we’re going to talk about. Piece of meat? Give me a (expletive) break. That sounds like something a male supermodel would say: I feel like a piece of meat out here (White said in a mocking voice). That pisses me off worse than (expletive) canceling the event. I just heard that one today, Jim Rome told me that… The thing that drives me crazy about Greg Jackson is Greg Jackson has this whole little thing where he’s the nicest guy in the world, the nicest guy you’ve ever met. Real quiet and humble. He’s a (expletive) hardcore businessman. “That’s what that guy is. He plays the whole thing with Jon and Rashad (Evans) and (expletive) Jardine and all these guys ‘We’re all family, we’re all brothers. We’re a big family here and that’s what we are. We won’t fight each other because we’re family. (Expletive) You’re not family. You train together. Yes they like each other. There’s a lot of nice guys in MMA. Keith Jardine is one of the nicest guys you’ll ever meet. Rashad is cool too. This sport is full of nice guys. (But Greg) plays this card with these guys…”

“The only reason we even know who Greg Jackson is cause of (expletive) Diego Sanchez. Diego Sanchez came out of his camp because of GSP. GSP wanted to come train at Jackson’s camp and Diego was like (expletive) that (expletive). ‘This is my house, man. I’m going to have to fight this guy one day.’ What did Greg Jackson do? (Expletive) GSP down there isn’t he. You know why because he believed GSP would (expletive) beat Diego Sanchez. He made a business decision. I will take him over him. What happened to (expletive) family? Who could be more family to you than (expletive) Diego Sanchez, the kid’s been with you since he was (expletive) 14 years old. What happened to family, Greg, you (expletive) family-guy you.”

“Then you got Rashad Evans, Rashad Evans was with him the second-longest other than Diego Sanchez. ‘That’s his brother, we’re brothers. He’s my family. He’s this, that and everything else.’ Jon Jones wanted to come train there and comes in and everything is cool. Who the (expletive) did Greg Jackson pick? He picked the guy who he thought would beat Rashad Evans, no matter how (expletive) long Rashad Evans had been with him. He made a (expletive) business decision. He’s a businessman, he’s a (expletive), he’s a (expletive) con artist.”

“Let me be fair. It’s good to have a trainer whom you respect. To keep you in (expletive) line, that you don’t run the (expletive) show. To keep you in order, and you respect him enough to run a camp. And have his (expletive) together to keep your life organized and focused and ready for a (expletive) fight and can breakdown (the fight) and do all this other stuff. But Greg Jackson is a (expletive) businessman who cons all these guys into this family (expletive). Because it would be the perfect (expletive) world if I can have Diego, GSP, Rashad, Jon Jones and a list of other (expletive) characters who don’t have to fight each other because they’re all the best in the world. And if they don’t ever have to (expletive) fight each other, he makes money from all of these guys. Big money, because these are all big-money fighters. He’s full of (expletive) is what he is.”



“I was driving off the freeway, I had just landed and called him and told him what Sonnen said and he (expletive) laughed,” White said of Jones’ initial reaction. “It wasn’t like: Whoa (expletive) this might be the biggest mistake of my (expletive) career. I thought we had a (expletive) fight. He was laughing and was like ‘Alright I’m going to call my team and call you back in a little while.’ And then they call back and it was a completely different (expletive) story. It was the genius Greg Jackson that talked him out of the fight. Talked him out of fighting Chael Sonnen on eight days (expletive) notice, yet fighting Vitor Belfort off a full (expletive) camp. Ok, we were gonna fight Dan Henderson, guy’s got (expletive) knockout power, great wrestling, a good chin, tough (expletive) guy. Now here’s Chael Sonnen on eight days notice and he’s a (expletive) 185 pounder, coming in with no camp whatsoever. And you heard what they said: he’s a southpaw. Vitor Belfort’s a (expletive) southpaw. And hits (expletive) harder, and is faster and more explosive. So you’re gonna (expletive) say no to him on eight days notice but fight (Vitor). It’s so stupid that it gets me angry.”



“I don’t know, we’ll see how our talk goes. We’ve proven you don’t have to best friends to work here.But it’s not a good idea to have a horrible relationship with us either. I get mad all the time and (expletive) happens, but the voice of reason in the next office over here (UFC co-owner Lorenzo Fertitta). If you can get along with him than I’m cool with that. We run a business.

“Lorenzo was really pissed. Like I said pissing me off is one thing, I’m always pissed off. But he’s never pissed off. You start getting to the point where you’re pissing him off, then …”
he mad.

More sour grapes from a bald cry baby. He's used to getting his way and now that someone doesn't have to bow to him he's losing his shit.

i can't stand looking at jackson's face to be honest. he looks so weak that you feel like punching him, and his voice, ahhhh! i always press the mute button when he is on.
however i think he did the right thing with jones not fighting 'teacher's pet' chael sonnen.

i can't stand dana anymore. his swearing every few words makes him sound like a teenager who thinks its tough to do so. its embarrassing, especially when he was with tyson that time.
he is actually putting me off the ufc. i'm starting to feel that his presence is too overpowering in the organization.
he comes across as not being a nice person whatsoever. i can't believe i used to stick up for him when people slagged him off.

I don't like Dana at all, but he is right.

Jones doesn't have a fighters mentality at all.

I wouldn't be shocked if he quits the first time he is beat. Espically if it's a KO.

I don't understand why White is crying about Jackson being a business man? It is a ****ing business.

If a guy without a fighter's mentality can come in and dominate the way that Jones has with only a couple years of training, then MMA ain't much of a sport.

Only Dana gets to be a business man. The fighters and their representatives should do what they're told to by Zuffa and keep their mouths shut no matter how ridiculous Zuffa's demands are (e.g. them trying to force Shogun to fight Jones at UFC 152 when he was still on medical suspension and wouldn't even be cleared to start training until a week before the fight). Let's ignore the fact that Zuffa only cares about the bottom line and will exile any of these guys to minor league promotions in second if they want to.

I'm so sick of this guy and his ****ing fake tough guy shtick and the MMA sheeple who buy into it. I can't believe that there are bunch of so-called fight fans foaming at the mouth about a ****ing trainer day in and day out on message boards because Dana keeps popping off about him in the media.

They promote this loudmouthed cunt more than their actual fighters.

Shit like this is why Zuffa is failing. No wonder they've lost half their audience in the past two years.

Yeah, they should make everything revolve around the fighters. **** the promotional company that travels internationally to host shows in new markets around the globe at massive expense to themselves. **** the company that struggled and spent millions to get MMA to the stage where it is actually considered a real sport. And **** the promotor who tells the fans exactly what he's thinking and tries to make the matchups that the fans want to see.

What MMA really needs is a handful of fighters making $20 million per fight, like it is in boxing. That way they can fight six times in six years, like Mayweather. And that way if Shogun doesn't feel like defending his title against Jones, he just wouldn't fight him. Why would he fight Bones for $20 million when he can make $12-15 million to fight Vera? Sure the fans wanted to see him fight Jones, but **** them. He'd rather hang onto the belt and pick and choose a walkover defence once a year.
